Here's some terrible and inexplicable news out of Southern California. The Los Angeles Times is reporting that three Marines were stabbed after a fight broke out between Angels and Dodgers fans in downtown Huntington Beach, Calif. Here are the details from the Times's Anthony Clark Carpio:
Six people were arrested Sunday after officers were summoned to a dispute between people fighting over the two baseball teams. Police said the 1:45 a.m. incident took place near the intersection of Main and Walnut streets, a crowded intersection just blocks from the beach.
Officers said the incident apparently began when a woman wearing an Angels jersey got into a dispute with two people who were talking about the Dodgers.
As the conflict grew, three Marines who were passing by attempted to come to the aid of the woman wearing the Angels jersey, but ended up being attacked and stabbed.
Fortunately, according to the Times, the three Marines "were recovering Monday." Although, as noted, six arrests have been made, the investigation is ongoing. The Times adds that anyone who has information or cellphone video of the incident should call the Huntington Beach Police tip line at (714) 375-5066.
